Health Manpower Needs in North Carolina, 1967-1973.
North Carolina Employment Security Commission, Raleigh.
This study sought to determine over-all growth patterns of employment in health related establishments, to project needs for 48 selected occupations through 1973, and to identify current job opportunities, training needs, and employment problems. With medical and health services growing so fast, federal agencies predict an average need of 10,000 workers per month through 1975. In North Carolina alone, employees in the surveyed services exceeded 66,000 in early 1967, and employers forecast about a 30% increase in health service jobs by 1973, raising the total above 85,000. Currently the greatest need is for registered nurses. About 80% of all personnel is expected to come from schools, on-the-job training, and the presently unemployed, leaving an unmet need for about 3900 workers. This report gives charts and tables detailing and correlating the six types of employing institutions surveyed (hospitals, rest homes, laboratories, offices, etc.), the 48 different occupations examined (nurse, medical technologist, orderly, etc.), anticipated employment by occupation, distribution of employment by sex, current job vacancies, projected manpower supply, types of training facility, statewide and area surveys, changes by number and percentage, anticipated additions to health services, etc. Appendices include definitions from the Dictionary of Occupational Titles for all the occupations studied, a list of non-surveyed occupations considered in short supply by sampled employers, and the methodology and scope of the study.
